Multivariable Calculus HelpHaving trouble even figuring out where to start on this problem. Our professor uploaded it on a kind of "cumulative final study guide", but I think we either use change of variables or surface integrals/parameterized surfaces (two topics we have covered). Let me know if you can help me tackle this one! Thanks! #2 20130514 13:18:52
Re: Multivariable Calculus Helpthere is a formula for the length of a curve that might help. jane fairfax gave it to me on this forum a few years ago. igloo myrtilles fourmis #3 20130514 13:32:46
Re: Multivariable Calculus HelpI searched for Jane's formula but couldn't find it. igloo myrtilles fourmis #4 20130521 05:29:54
Re: Multivariable Calculus HelpThe surface integral would give the area of a specified surfaced of the paraboloid (z) but we want area of the fence which comes up from surface to z=0 along the points y=x^2.
